imageAt 8:30am (GMT-4) on August 14th, a strong, shallow earthquake rocked southwestern Haiti.  The 7.2 magnitude quake, which was 10km deep, toppled buildings and homes and damaged infrastructure and roads, cutting off access to some roads in the southwest such as National Road 7 (RN#7) connecting Les Cayes and Jeremie, and forcing many to flee their homes in fear that they may collapse.  There have been many casualties and deaths reported in the areas in the southwest parts of Haiti.  
The Liberty Rotary Club Disaster Relief Committee has been in contact with many of our friends in Haiti who are providing intel and information about the immediate needs.  District 7020 Past District Governor Robert Leger and member of the Rotary Club des Cayes will be helping us coordinate our relief efforts.  Gustav Clivens who lives in Ile A Vache, an island 9 miles south

On behalf of our fellow Rotarians and friends in Haiti, our Liberty NY Rotary Club Disaster Relief Committee is asking everyone to consider making a donation to support our relief efforts there.  Our goal is to raise at least $10,000. Receiving the donations quickly will provide help to our friends in Haiti in real time.  
All proceeds raised will go to the Liberty NY Rotary Club Disaster Relief Fund and will be used to provide relief as determined by our assessments of the situation on the ground in Haiti.
